Once we clean them up and make any minor repairs we will drop them off at the Homeless Connect.
Your donation will provide eyewear for someone in need.
Spring of 2017 Homeless Connect Edmonton Event
In the Spring of 2017 we participated in our first Homeless Connect Edmonton Event.
This event is a community inspired initiative, providing free services to people that are experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless
Volunteer service providers from health care providers, hairdressers and more donate their time and expertise to work with those that attend the event.
Our time was spent in the optical area, providing eye care, repairing eyewear and giving out eyeglasses for those in need.

The volunteers in the optical department were from large chain stores to small local independent stores like Trendz Optical
It was a real pleasure to be part of such an event and we look forward to participating in he October event
We are collecting eyeglasses for this event. If you have any old eyeglasses that are in good shape we can use them for the next event.
We will provide any needed small repairs and give them a good cleaning before they are donated.
Thank you for your support.
